We reported last week that Joe Quesada and Brian Michael Bendis had met with Kenneth Branagh to discuss the new Marvel 'THOR' movie, which we are all looking forward too. They really didn't explain what was said or what went on in that meeting until the New York Comic Con this weekend. It sounds like Branagh has really buried himself in the world of Thor and that he has quite an amazing vision for the movie here is what Quesada had to say:
"We spent seven or eight hours with Kenneth where he meticulously took us through the beats of the ‘Thor' movie along with [Marvel Studios head] Kevin Feige and our friends at Marvel West. We just sat there, and it was almost like he acted out the entire movie."
"You just thought, ‘Wow. This guy has immersed himself in the Marvel culture - not just in Thor - but in the Marvel universe in general. He knew a lot of stuff - some things that I didn't even know."
"He was reciting Thor stuff from the past, continuity events, quotes from different books, little bits and pieces from stories that he really found fascinating - whether they were old [Jack] Kirby and [Stan] Lee stories or [Walter] Simonson stories or modern stuff that we're doing, He really got it."
I knew Branagh would be the right man for the job when it was first leaked that he was probably going to direct the movie. Now that he is fully on board and at work on the story I couldn't be more excited for his 'Thor' vision to be brought to life. I think he is going to give the fans one hell of an awesome movie.
